    Last play rule ruins ending of Bucs game

    Sunday, September 14 2014 9:28 PM EDT2014-09-15 01:28:12 GMT
    It's the play everyone is talking about, a series of events on one play that cost the Bucs a shot at winning. Even with no time outs the Bucs still had a chance to win this game, still had a shot at a 51 yard field goal, if they could have stopped the clock. But instead, didn't get to even see the clock count down to zero, that time was quickly erased by a simple rule.

    The Bucs don't have a lot of depth anywhere on the team and their defensive line is taking a big hit. The Bucs will be without at least their starting left defensive end for the rest of the season, and their right end is doubtful for Sunday.

    Offensively the Bucs floundered around for 50 minutes. They failed to put together any semblance of a scoring treat until late in the game. At times Josh McCown looked like a rookie throwing away chances, right into the hands of Carolina's top ranked defense.
